Philly-based, small-batch custom coffee roaster Rival Bros. Coffee has officially opened its pop-up coffee bar in Bala Cynwyd’s NoBA Development. Co-owners and lifelong friends chefs Jonathan Adams and Damien Pileggi are the faces behind the urban coffee shop, marking their first venture outside of Center City.
Coffee aficionados and cold brew addicts won’t want to miss the array of selections brewed from Rival Bros. Coffee’s beans, which are roasted daily at its roastery in the city’s Frankford section. Choose from traditional hand-poured drip coffee, a Chemex bar and a variety of beverages from the espresso bar.
There are plenty of sweet treat to go with the coffee. Take your pick from the variety of croissants, pains au chocolat and other tantalizing French pastries delivered fresh daily from Narberth’s French Artisan Bakery Au Fournil.
Rival Bros. is just the start at the NoBA Development, so anticipate more pop-up neighborhood events, local businesses, restaurants, retailers and artisans.
Rival Bros. Coffee is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 210 Bala Ave., Bala Cynwyd. Visit www.rivalbros.com for more information.
